Does anybody know of a motherboard that properly suppots one of these processors? Bought one a while back, and a socket 775 motherboard to go with it, then found the motherboard doesn't fully support it and I can only use a single core.
Just gone online to look for a replacement, and found the GA-P35-DS3L doesn't support it either, and that's using one of Intel's latest chipsets.
Anybody know if there's a guide around to exactly which socket 775 motherboards work with which socket 775 processors? Very annoyed by this, tempted to swop to AMD just because I know they work.
I have the 805 D running for two years this May, I think. Runs in my 965 and 945. The 975 chipset also supports the 805 D. I also have run mine on a 775 ATI Express chipset, but I don't have that exact chipset info in front of me.
There have been a lot of Forumz members report clocking their 805 D to 3.6, 3.8 and even near 4.0 over the years. I ran mine an 3.5ghz on air on an ASUS 945G for a long time. I have it in a quiet front office micro build right now on an Intel ATI Radeon Express chipset. The 965P or 975 atx MB's offer more powerful voltage regulators than the 945g micro I was using to overclock the 805 D. You should easily overclock to 3.5, 3.6ghz on air with a 975 or 965P atx MB.
